anoushka shankar from india, living in london but when i was in high school in the u.s., and helped run a feminism club along with friends. the adults used to laugh and find it quite cute. a few years later in my early 20s, i look back and 19 itself thinking the -- look back at my team itself thinking i knehad bn quite me. i think it was the girl in my twenties that was naive. there's nothing to buy what is going on in the world. what is now leave is wanting to change it. as a child, i suffered sexual and emotional abuse for several years at the hands of a man my parents trusted implicitly. growing up, like most women i know, i suffered various forms of groping, touching, verbal abuse and other things i did not know how to deal with, did not know i could change. as a woman, i find i'm frequently living in fear. afraid to walk alone at night, afraid to answer a man who asks for the time, afraid i'm going to be judged or treated in ways based on the way i might choose to dress or the make that i might choose to wear. enough is enough. i am rising. i am rising for jodi and women like her.
